Texans' Will Fuller: Patriots take away deep threat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fuller saw a lot of coverage over the top, with a safety helping on any deep routes, which limited the rookie's effectiveness in Week 3's loss to the Patriots. "They did a good job. They played basically a defense where they were over the top quite a bit, not all the time, not all the time, but quite a bit over the top of (Will) Fuller and over the top of Hop (DeAndre Hopkins). It was difficult," said Houston head coach Bill O'Brien.

Fuller, who had two consecutive 100-yard receiving games to start his career, was held to three caches for 31 yards by the Patriots in Week 3. Given the success New England had in limiting both Fuller and Hopkins, the Texans can expect to see similar coverage going forward.

Texans' Brock Osweiler: Tips opponents to target
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Osweiler has displayed a tendency to lock onto his primary read, something the Patriots exploited in Houston's 27-0 loss in Week 3, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

On the one interception he threw Thursday, Osweiler locked onto DeAndre Hopkins in the second quarter, failing to look off the defense or use a pump fake, leading to Jamie Collins picking him off. He'll need to break himself of that habit and vows to examine the tape and become a better quarterback. After a nice first week of the season, Osweiler has thrown three interceptions to one touchdown in the past two games.

Texans' Benardrick McKinney: Team-high 16 tackles in Week 3 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKinney recorded 16 tackles and a sack in Houston's 27-0 loss to New England in Week 3.

The plan heading into this season was to have McKinney expand to a three-down linebacker, but that plan was accelerated when the Texans lost Brian Cushing to a knee injury that will leave him out at least six weeks. McKinney, a 2015 second-round draft pick, is getting a ton of experience as a result. He has sacks in each of the last two games and his 29 tackles leads the team through three games.

Texans' Braxton Miller: Injury not long term
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller's hamstring injury is not long term, according to Houston head coach Bill O'Brien. "He's in there right now getting treatment, so we will see how it is this week," said the coach.

Miller suffered the injury in Week 2's win over the Chiefs and was unable to play in the quick turnaround to Week 3 on Thursday in New England. Jaelen Strong filled in for Miller against the Patriots and will be the likely replacement If Miller's unable to get ready for Week 4 against the Titans.

Texans' J.J. Watt: Plays 80 percent of snaps in Week 3 loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Watt was on the field for 51 of 64 defensive snaps (80 percent) in Houston's 27-0 loss to New England in Week 3. He finished with two tackles and was a non-factor in the game.

As a percentage of snap counts, Week 3 was the lowest of the three games played so far for Watt, who had back surgery in July. The reduced snap count could have been due to the short week of preparation and/or the blowout nature of the game, so at this point, we're not too concerned. Watt is getting back to full strength and should see a healthy amount of playing time Week 4 against the Titans.
